Fugger: Cate Blanchett

Fug or Fab: Cate Blanchett


Having a movie come out during your break between awards shows is VERY awkward timing for anyone who’d prefer to go home and sleep in her skin-enriching cryogenic tube for a month.

At first I thought maybe I’d give this outfit to her, but by the end I’d changed my mind and I have divorced it so that I can move on with my life and find happiness someplace else. Let’s see if you agree.

The Cate Blanchett Winner’s Lap continues. But is this a winning look? I’m just asking.

This is either amazing or TMI. Or it’s amazing TMI. Up to you.

SAG Awards Fug Carpet: Cate Blanchett


I’m going to put her to a vote anyway, because Carte Blanchett demands it, but: I simply had to take a stand and say that, despite mulling it over in boring detail in my own brain, I don’t like it. And I think we’d be freaking out if Amy Adams or Jennifer Lawrence or Sandra Bullock or Julia Roberts showed up wearing this. So while context IS important — the wearer can make or break an outfit, just as an outfit can make or break the wearer — I just can’t bring myself to think this is awesome or pretend I am in love with her sequined hanky. THERE. I said it. I’M FREE.

Critics’ Choice Awards Well Played, Cate Blanchett


How do I love thee, Cate? Let me count the ways:

First of all, that lipstick. I spent like three years looking for an orange lipstick that worked on my face and I still feel like I’m not quite there. (This search was prompted by the time J Crew had a great orange on all their models; I actually bought THAT orange and it’s almost right, but not quite. Sigh. These are real problems over which to be losing sleep, obviously. I’m totally falling down a Sephora wormhole later today. I can just feel it.) This lipstick is great on her.

Second, I think what works about Cate Blanchett, like, ALWAYS, is that she is cool about whatever she happens to be wearing. Is she wearing a BATSHIT CRAZY dress that looks like a quilt? She’s cool. Her entire archive is basically her looking cool in something slightly nuts. But this look doesn’t even need her carte blanchett. It’s just delightfully simple, classic, a smidge retro. Basically anyone would look good in this dress. There is something so RELAXING about that.

Finally: that clutch is great. No bells, no whistles, just square shiny goodness.

Golden Globes Weekend Fugs and Fabs: Cate Blanchett


Sometimes I think this looks like predatory algae; other times, I think it’s groovy on her. Carte Blanchett strikes again, the cunning sorceress.┬áThe one thing I can say about it for sure: This is what Marchesa THINKS it’s doing, but isn’t.
